In 2019, Lombardy was the Italian region with the largest number of pharmacies. Other regions with a similar population, such as Lazio and Campania, had almost half of Lombardy’s pharmacies. Indeed, the latter two were among the regions with greatest number of inhabitants per pharmacy.  

Online Sales

In 2017, Piedmont, Lombardy and Campania were the regions where most of the pharmacies authorized to sell products online were located. The turnover generated by Italian pharmacies through online sales constantly increased between 2013 and 2017, when it reached 96 million euros.  

Services provided by Italian pharmacies

In recent years, pharmacies in Italy not only extended the channels through which they sell their products, but also widened their range of services provided. In the past, pharmacies were just drug stores. Currently, many Italian pharmacies provide the possibility to take diagnostic tests and to book health appointments.
